Justin is al een tiener uit een excentrieke familie, maar hij zuigt nog steeds op zijn duim.

The rest of the cast is excellent as well, especially D'Onofrio as a father unable to show his emotions, Vaughn as a cool teacher, and Reeves as a wacked-out dentist. The Polyphonic Spree composed songs for the film, which is based on a novel by Walter Kirn.
